Flame arrester elements (crimped ribbon types) consist of two stainless steel (or better) strips of 0,2 or 0.15 mm of thickness; the width varies depending upon the duty. In each case a smooth and a corrugated strip are wound tightly together, forming a circular element. This forms a gap between the smooth and corrugated strip with a triangular section. The width of the gap is determined by the height of the corrugation. The gap width used in a specific flame arrester is related to the MESG of the gas mixture, but not equal to it.
Special widths for gas/air or vapour mixtures with abnormal flashback characteristics can be determined with the co-operation of test-institutes like PTB, BAM or IBExU, and manufactured by ourselves. The flame arrester may also be CE marked during this verification procedure.
